Plate "Series Mosaics"
With the MOSAIKE series, the Linzer Glasmanufaktur has created a new design line that interacts both with the reduced contemporary architecture of the 21st century and with the classic living atmosphere.
In this design, mainly plates, bowls and dishes are available in different shapes and sizes. Even though they are produced in small series, each piece is still carefully handcrafted and therefore, like all of the artist's art and design objects, unique.
The work is done in glass fusing technique, where pieces of glass are burned in two stages in a fusing furnace at approx. 820 ° C.
can be fused together. In a further firing process, the flat molten objects are brought to their final shape over a model.
In the next step, the surface is sandblasted on both sides, giving it a silky matt surface. Finally, the edges are ground and matt polished.
What is glass fusing and how are the works of art created?
Glasfusing is a well-known glass processing method. In the warm glass technique "Fusing", "cold pieces of glass" are first used, which are then melted and formed in the oven at approx. 800 - 900 degrees, connections within the material are thus created.
Mechanical abrasion of the glass surface, making it opaque. Sandblasting can be carried out over the entire surface or partially.
